While you may be more likely to experience coughing and sneezing

when your allergies flare up, though, pets typically experience itchy skin.

If your dog or cat spends most of their time chewing, scratching, or licking, it could signify that they are suffering from environmental allergies. Hair loss and discolored fur are common allergy symptoms, too. Here at PetNest Animal Hospital, we perform allergy testing for pets in Friso, and we are here to help you stop the itch once and for all.

Questions About Allergy Testing

What Are Pet Environmental Allergies?
Environmental allergies occur when there is an exaggerated immune response to an allergen. An allergen is a protein that comes from exposure to things like tree pollen, grass pollen, dander, and flea saliva. Your pet can develop antibodies to an allergen and then overreact to it. This leads to skin inflammation and itchiness.
